Explore The Landscape of the Psyche -a Creative Arts Day For All
On this day we will discover the value of creative media in growth and therapy - using paint, clay, collage and drawing, we will dig into the landscape of our psyche to create, to share and to discover the power of arts as a tool for transformation. This is a CPD day for practising therapists, counsellors and holistic practitioners and an experiential day for all those interested in the power of the arts to offer growth into potential.
You are welcome to come if you have undertaken a reasonable amount of personal growth and have the resilience to dig deep - if you are unsure, or if you have current mental health issues, please contact me first. My intention is to be inclusive but to keep you safe. Thankyou.
I am Anna Grace-Jacobs I have been exploring the creative arts within myself and within therapy and counselling for nearly thirty years, with both children and adults. Over this time, the depth, breadth and power of linking creativity with psyche, spirit and body never fails to amaze me. I love to share this passion with others and hope to offer another fruitful, inspiring safe and educative day.
On this day we will :
- Explore various art forms and their healing potential on your psyche, body and soul.
- Have a chance to create at least two pieces of art work.
- Explore this process for yourself as well as the potential therapeutic value for your clients if appropriate.
- Discover some of the theories behind arts therapies.
- Touch on the power of the arts to promote deeper transformation.
- Art forms on offer will be painting, clay and modelling materials, collage, drawing, creative writing.
- I always offer experiential days, with some theory, so come prepared to try new things out, or deepen your experience, as well as learn some of the background to these techniques.
At the end of the day you should have
- a sense of the potential within the creative arts for growth.
- had some personal experience of the creative process together with how this impacts on your psyche and self.
- some understanding of the theories that underpin the arts in therapy.
- and how to begin to include this in the practice room for therapists
- For non- therapists, a deeper appreciation of how the creative arts can enhance growth and transformation..
Contact me if you have any queries and I look forward to hearing from you.
Once you have paid and booked I will send out final details closer to the time.
With thanks in advance.
